The director of the Media Center, Salem Zahran, said in a tweet on his Twitter account, "The Ain Qana fire was caused by the explosion of a center for the collection of remnants of war. There are no casualties or injuries, and only physical damage."
The Lebanese army and Hezbollah imposed a security cordon around the site of the explosion, and ambulances and civil defense vehicles rushed to the town.
On the other hand, the Secretary-General of the Red Cross, George Kittana, noted that "we received a call about the explosion in Ain Qana, and the first ambulance set out on its way to a fuel station at the site, and initial information indicates that there were no injuries."
